A woman who was hit by a car after walking on a highway in Los Angeles is suing Google.
Lauren Rosenberg claims she looked up a walking route on Google Maps on her Blackberry on 19 January last year.
The directions she was given included walking on a highway that has no pavement, but instead of seeking an alternate route she walked in the middle of the highway.
She was hit by a car and is suing Google for medical expenses amounting to $100,000 (£68,000), and for punitive damages. Rosenberg is also suing the driver who hit her.
Her court filing claims Rosenberg "was and is a competent adult" and lays full blame on Google and the driver.
